Well having decided to keep the car, coming upto 3 yrs in May (longest ive ever had a car before is 18months) ive decided to add my first few mods (apart from Y pipe and 4 light kit and wrap )
A week on monday im off to Litchfields for 36 month service, 4 new tyres, stage 2 and MY12 g/b software. Also decided to have some spacers fitted 15mm front and 20mm rear.

But then a thought occured to me. With the front tyres sticking out another 15mm will the side of the car be much more prone to stone chips. If so i might reconsider.

Mines is a daily driver, new last Sept.
Cleaning the car a few weeks ago and there is quite a rash around the front area of rear arches. Its obviously coming from the crap thrown back by the fronts. Nothing major and I've already started to tidy it up but with spacers it would be a whole lot worse.

Nissan have made an attempt to protect this area with some vinyl but it covers what - 8x4''? Not enough.

Have never been into wraps/ protection but would seriously consider this area if I was going for spacers.
